Introduction

Choosing the right name for your new furry companion is no easy task. After all, it has to be just the right fit since you'll be saying it a lot over the next decade + of adventures together! If a dog has a penchant for clown-like antics, you might want to give them a "handle" that best suits their personality. Silliness is a trait that many dogs seem to exhibit, and their exuberant, happy nature brings a smile to the faces of everyone they meet. Doesn't a dog like that deserve a name that really reflects their own personal brand of "joie de vivre?'

Silly Dog Name Considerations

If you're the proud owner of a silly dog, you can have some real fun going through different name considerations. Whether you go for the obvious with a synonym for "silly" such as "Dippy" or "Flighty" or something more cerebral like the "Prince of Barkness", you're bound to find a name that fits your funny little furry companion like a glove.

When selecting a name to reflect a silly dog's true nature, many owners like to consider a play on words. Often these names are derived from real live people or even characters in beloved novels, television shows, or movies. A fan of the cult classic Bridget Jones series of novels and films might opt to name their pampered pooch "Bridget Bones" as a means to pay homage to a favorite fictional heroine. Or a true basketball fan might honor their top player by giving their dog the moniker "Charles Bark-ley" or even "Kareem Abdul Ja-Bark." Why not go for comedy gold and name your giant dog "Tiny" or your Mexican hairless "Fluffy?"

Choosing a silly name for your dog is a great way to endear yourself to others. Who doesn't appreciate a sense of humor? A silly name such as "Jimmy Chew" is a great way to break the ice and make new friends of the human and canine variety at the dog park.
